patches Parser.php for ISSN magicnumbering

This patch is useless because the code that was supposed to use the function you
added is commented out, furthermore, making a new function to parse ISSN codes
rather than adding that functionality to the already existing ISBN function
(they're parsed almost in the same way),

  • Avoid mixing tabs and spaces; use tabs consistently
  • Please follow existing code conventions on code block usage
  • Will require patch to Sanitizer.php to protect against ISSN links in HTML

bits

  • Won't this not work without a patch to Booksources?

What is this for? ISBN is a label for a single book. ISSN is a label for an
entire journal; not individual articles or even volumes. What is going to be on
the "ISSN sources" page? A single link to the web site of the journal? What's
the point?

WONTFIX'ing per comment 10 and lack of activity for 3 years.

Lack of activity is never a legitimate reason for WONTFIXing, but I don't think we want more magic like ISBN and RFC. Better that those should be phased out in favor of templates at some point in the future.

re-opening to depend on Bug #26207

Removing need-review keyword. This absolutely depends on 26207 which presumably would handle this cleanly without requiring Sanitizer & Parser changes.
